why I am who I am

An Aussie friend emailed me a couple of links on YouTube to "Nova Scotianaila" this weekend. He meant well, but the first link was a vignette of 50s images with a Stan Rogers soundtrack. I haven't dared to listen to Stan since I migrated. Too close to the bone. But I watched and listened (tissues well used).

This is a balm for the soul. Thank goodness I am from a place which understands (and celebrates) leaving. I am going home in August. I am really looking forward to it. I gave up this place to be successful. I am, and it was a good decision, but God, it was hard.
